Implementing Policy Outcomes on Financial Inclusion and Financial Systems Development

Monday, June 10, 2019 to Friday, June 14, 2019

Financial Inclusion in its simplest form is the ability to access appropriate financial services in the formal financial system. However, it is not just about a bank branch or correspondent on the corner. It is about clients using sustainable, responsible financial products that add value to their daily lives. 

In other words, there is the need to develop the right product, at the right place, at the right price. The successful implementation of the national financial inclusion strategy is not only in the interests of the consumers of financial services. 

The Government also stands to benefit from a population that is financially capable and therefore more productive; financial institutions benefit from increased uptake of financial services and the economy as a whole will benefit from a deeper and broader financial system.
